Swedish indie-electro duo The Knife released their new music video for “Lets Talk About Gender Baby, Lets Talk About You and Me.” The song is a reinterpretation by Berlin-based Planningtorock of The Knife’s song “Full of Fire”, and the first single to be taken from their fourth studio album, Shaking The Habitual. The Planningtorock version’s chorus is a play on words from the ’90s classic “Let’s Talk About Sex” from rap group Salt-N-Peppa and a line from The Knife’s song, “Full of Fire.” “Let’s Talk About Gender Baby, Let’s Talk About You And Me” (Planningtorock Rework) will be released October 15 on Rabid / Brille / Mute Records.
Formed in 1999 in Stockholm, the duo is composed of siblings Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer. Together the two run their own record label, Rabid Records. The multiple Swedish Grammis Award winners won over American indie audiences when José González of Junip covered their song “Heartbeats” on his 2003 album, Veneer, and was later used in a popular Sony commercial.
